Proposed Organizational Structure for D.I.S.S Alumni
There have been several attempts in the past to set up an alumni association for former students of Dority International Secondary School.
Most of those attempts failed because of a lack of communication and unfamiliarity between the different graduating sets.
The proposed organizational structure is that each graduating class, from 1997 to 2018, should establish an informal group on Whatsapp, Facebook or any other social media platform.
The informal groups then combine to create a registered association, D.I.S.S Alumni.
Each group elects leaders, representatives and contact persons who deliberate on DISS Alumni’s objectives and communicate its desires and plans to the rest of the alumni.
For example, the 1997 class has Okechukwu Onye as its leader and contact person. He will relay the wishes of 1997 class to the other alumni and act as an ambassador between the 1997 class and the other classes.
The advantage of this structure is that no member or graduating set would be relegated to the background. All voices would be heard.
The Future of D.I.S.S Alumni
D.I.S.S Alumni has the potential to be one of the most sophisticated and effective alumni associations in Nigeria.
But its members have to co-operate and engage with each other to reach those lofty heights.
